Relax in Style, Comfort, & Convenience Near Private Beaches
Anna and Scott were born and raised in Honolulu and they love to travel. They believe vacations are much more memorable and enjoyable with the comfort and convenience of a home away from home feel and with good local knowledge of the surrounding communities. Feel free to ask them anything.
Scott purchased this House in 2017

Better Than Advertised
This was an amazing house with everything we could have wanted and needed for our vacation. The location was perfect, near the major attractions that we had planned for our trip, and far enough away from the craziness of Waikiki. Right off the highway so getting in and out was quick and easy. Scott was a very gracious host that made sure we had everything we needed, including many amenities not shown in the listing, down to water shoes and snorkeling gear, beach chairs, and sound machines in the bedrooms if you like that. The house is bigger and better than it looks in the pictures, we were honestly blown away.
The parking situation at the house is tight, but it never caused us a real issue. Really the only negative I guess was that in order to walk to the beach as advertised the listing, you have to walk across a fairly busy highway (there is a crosswalk at a light though), and basically though other people's yards to get to the beach. But you're literally a 5 minute car ride to several other better beaches so not a big deal at all.
Overall, it was awesome. Everything we could have wanted and more, and I'm really not exaggerating.
10 out of 10, would definitely recommend to anyone and our whole party agreed we would love to stay here if we visit Oahu again.
The property was wonderful. Scott was informative and readily available. They even gave us mangoes which happened to be my kids favorite fruit. Great place to stay
Tuyen and Thuy,
I'm glad to hear you guys enjoyed your vacation in our home. The mango tree is bearing fruit and we love to share! Next year more mangoes await...
We were seven members of two combined families and found this house to be very comfortable. The large kitchen, dining, living room area was the perfect gathering place for all of us to be together. The view of the ocean was the icing on the cake!
It was great having you guys stay with us. Glad to hear you enjoyed the East side of the island and the panoramic views.
The location was excellent, the home had all the ammenities, and it is exactly as the photos and description.
Thank you for the great review. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and all the wonderful sights East Oahua has to offer. We hope to see you again.
View is fantastic!
Scott is a helpful and knowledgeable host. Check other reviews for specific comments, all were accurate. The open kitchen and living room space is great for meals and hanging out. Shopping and great beaches nearby by car. We enjoyed the ping pong with the kids.
Great place for large group
This property was really great for our group of eight, which was comprised of five adults, one teenager and two small children. It's a great location outside of crazy Honolulu and Waikiki--the driveway sneaks up on you so drive slowly. The website only lists three bedrooms, but the zen room has a sort of barn door that you can close off from the rest of the house, so that's basically a fourth bedroom. It's very close to several gas stations, the COSTCO and Safeway, and lots of beaches, Koko Head, Hanauma Bay, Makapu'u Lighthouse, etc... The view from the living room was GORGEOUS. Having the two refrigerators and a fully equipped kitchen was really nice and definitely helped us save some money on dining out. There was herbs and spices already here and some condiments. The gas grill was awesome. There was also four beach chairs, snorkel equipment, a cooler and tons of beach toys. The beds and pillows were comfortable. Super convenient that the house had nine beach towels so we didn't have to pack our own. There is a stash of grocery bags so you don't have to buy any at the grocery store. Having a washer and dryer here was key! We did a load every night so the beach towels and our swim suits were ready to go for the next day.
If we ever come back to Oahu, we will try to stay here again if Scott lets us. It's been a great place for us to call our home away from home. We loved it here. Plenty of hot water when everyone was trying to shower at the same time. Plenty of seating for eating in and relaxing. The lanai was so nice! Free wifi! Love, love love!!!
Thanks for the great review. We are thrilled to hear the house exceeded all of your expectations. As VRBO users, we understand and take pride in providing all those comforts that visitors like ourselves enjoy in a vacation rental. Best of all, the wonderful view came with the house!
You and the family are defintiely welcome to visit us again anytime Kansas gets too cold!
